How SAP HANA is Different from other Databases?

Enabling future of businesses not only needs well-developed databases, but also simplified data infrastructure, instant data gathering from various sources, seamlessly mixing the third-party applications and combining the analytics and transaction processing. This all has to be done in an affordable way.

SAP HANA addresses platform, technology and database challenges. It is a real game changer in database management. Specifically, it was designed from the ground up to leverage instant advances in the microprocessor technology that delivers a lot of processing power. The data is processed as well as stored in the memory in columns. It is not stored on the rows, nor external drives.

Traditional Databases

These databases could just manage a particular business work pressure at a given point of time. For instance, in a call center, the moment an application is installed, the fundamental data infra is configured and tuned in order to support a particular application. These databases work excellently for the application; however, when there is any need to do things differently like gathering business insights, these systems are not capable of doing it. Then, data needs to be duplicated or moved, and that creates the additional work as well as impacts business productivity.

Imagine that customer needs to run several business apps. Example: running a routine call center also requires marketing, hiring, customer support, financial and sales systems, and logistics. Every system will begin duplicating the data in order to support the business insights and that increases the complexity level. It gets even more complicated in case we look at different kinds of the data simultaneously. For example, suppose finance data is coupled with sales, customer data or merchandising. In past so many years, businesses have duplicated the existing data in the data warehouse. The bigger size of data becomes quite difficult to collate data warehouse properly. These organizations have to aggregate and summarize data, resulting in detail loss as well as diminished good business performance. It becomes a big risk for all the businesses.

Handling the Complexity with SAP HANA

With the help of SAP HANA, the traditional data storage systems' limitations can be handled via eliminating silos and offering a common platform for operational, machine, event, transaction, warehousing as well as for unstructured data stored together.

All this is possible owing to the in-memory computing engine of SAP HANA, which permits users to consolidate the data silos as well as reduce the complexity faced by traditional databases. Ultimately, it permits businesses to spend more time on innovation and less time on integration. The adoption of the SAP HANA speaks for itself. Till date, there are around 1000 customers of SAP HANA across Asia.

SAP HANA has allowed businesses to create influential new applications. In addition, it offers customers an innovative platform and hence has become a powerful engine, empowering business and cloud networks.

It is predictable that the disruptive ability of this platform will simplify the data inefficiency in the coming years and accelerate the business processes in order to cater to the requirements of the digital economy.
